X-ray checks had, shown two of. the babies were deformed, a National Health Board spokesman "in the other five cases the 'abor- tions- were granted for social, family or health reasons." As to foreign women, Dr. Karl- Inge Oester of the medical board explained legal abortion in Sweden may be authorized in cases when a severe illness in the mother could be transferred to the child. Such cases are decided on what is called eugenic indication, a con- dition that Stockholm medical ex- perts said may be valid in Mrs. Finkbine's case. In Oslo, the acting chief of ;Nor- way's health directorate, Bjoernson, said Norwegian Jon law has no provision for authorizing an abortion in advance. As Bjoernson-outlined it: A legal abortion can'be performed in Nor- way only on purely medical indi- cations. The physician "in charge of the case must decide -whether an operation is necessary. At the outset of the hearing, the court indicated it would turn reap- portionment over to the 1363 ses- sion if it felt the legislature would carry out the court's man date and rcapportion on the basis of population. The prospect of such a move by the court triggered a parade of pro and con witnesses Wednes day. Sid White, attorney for the plain- tiff in the case and Norman Rey- nolds, attorney for Gov. J. How- ard Edmondson, contended the legislature couldn't be trusted to reapportiori fairly. Reynolds said the Oklahoma Su- preme Court has said the legisla- ture can't be expected to vote its members out of office. He added that Gov. Edmondson had done everything in to force reapportionment and reached the conclusion that it'was useless. But Sen. Boyd Cowden of Chand ler a 24-year legislative veter- an said'the lawmakers had re- versed, their feelings on the mat- ter since the U.S. Supreme Court's decision giving federal courts jurisdiction in reapportion ment. "In my opinion the next legis- lative session has no alternative jut to write a reapportionment Jaw in accordance with the 14th (equal protection) said Cowden. The court's only practical alter- native is to turn the matter to the 1963 session, Cowden added. Another.witness, House Speaker J.D. McCarty, said he felt the Bouse could pass a reapportion- ment measure under direction of Ihe federal 'court.

White wanted Edmondson to tes- ify concerning questionnaires he mailed to legislators asking what they would do if he called'a spe- cial session. Edmondson said earlier, that a majority of the legislators told lim they did not think they could reapportion to satisfy the court.
